What is the extended patio roof made of and how is it being supported?

I can't make out the exact materials being used for the awning of the patio. It appears like reed or maybe bamboo? And it seems to be supported by the thinest of metal so that it can't be too heavy? It also appears like a random seasonal add-on? Not exactly something that would endure rain or winds? Looking forward to the answer as it is intriguing!

You are absolutely correct - the shade structure is made of bamboo matting over a very thin steel sub structure - the matting is removed during the winter when shading is not required.

Best, Nick
